Wilson, who lives in Tampa, told reporters on the scene, “his good kid” was “just at the wrong place and the wrong time.”

Wilson said, “I have been telling him to stop spending a lot of time with certain people for a long time but he will not listen. ”

Bercaw stated that a male shooter turned himself in to the police. Bercaw said that authorities believed that there was a second gunman involved.

It is not possible to disclose immediately the condition of 18 injured hospitalized patients.
